Arduino Mobile Development with Grove
List of hardware & Software requirements
The following lists contain the parts, tools and software needed to complete "Arduino Mobile Development with Blynk".
The items in these lists are provided in an effort to make it easier for our students to find the parts and tools they need. While we take care to find reliable sellers, we cannot be responsible for problems in their supply chain or fulfillment. Sellers may run out of stock at any time, or shipments may be lost in transit. For issues like these, or for warranty claims, please contact the seller directly.
If you do not live in the US, UK or Germany, or the Amazon stores that we provide links to below do not deliver to your location, consider using a freight forwarding service like Shipito. You can ship your shopping to them, and they will forward to you, anywhere in the world. This is useful in case, for at least some of the items in your shopping list, Amazon will not ship to addresses outside the US. To the best of my knowledge, Seeed will ship anywhere in the world directly, so you do not need a forwarding service.
This page contains links to Amazon or other retailers.
Tech Explorations is an Amazon Associate, and as such we earn a referral fee for any products that you may purchase from Amazon or an Amazon reseller through the links in this page. Our referral fee is part of the regular price that you will have to pay to Amazon or its resellers anyway. The amount that we earn from your purchase is a percentage of the retail price, not an add-on to the price that you pay.
Some of the links in this page may be pointing to retailers other then Amazon. You can assume that Tech Explorations will also earn a referral fee from those retailers.
If you prefer that Tech Explorations does not earn a referral fee from your purchase, you can search for and purchase a product directly from Amazon or other retailers. In that case, do not click on the links below. Of course, we do appreciate your support - but this is totally up to you.
Please note that you can still complete this course using any Arduino or ESP32 board. The only requirement is that the board you use is compatible with the Blynk platform. You can find a list of compatible devices here.
In the course, I use these boards:
Additional components that you may use:
The following components are optional extras that I use in the various experiments. Again (as with the micro-controllers), it is possible to substitute the following parts (such as the temperature sensor) with equivelants. This course focuses on the Blynk platform, not the specific hardware I use for the demonstrations.
